My name is Skip Youngdahl. Welcome to my home page on the World
Wide Web! I spent 24 years flying for Trans World Airlines and got
to see a lot of our globe from 37,000 feet. Since my retirement I've
tried to see as much of the world close up as I can. Having been
to all seven continents now, I want to share my experiences via the
Internet. Here you'll find pages from my trips to Southeast Alaska
in August of 1999, Antarctica in January and February of 2000, Easter
Island in February 2000, Spitsbergen, Norway in July 2000, Australia
in October and November 2000. In July of 2002 I did another expedition
cruise to Southeast Alaska with my daughter and her family. Moving on, my wife and I took a cruise through the capitals of Northern Europe in June
and July of 2005. To see Southern Europe we took a Mediterrean cruise in 2009. See the links below for more.

commandments to love God with all our heart and our neighbor as ourself
has never made more sense than today. We are members one of another. Ephesians 4:25
